Christmas is coming! So, it’s time to start thinking of where you can spend your holidays cozied away with a good book and a cup of hot coffee. In order to help you hide away from those chilly days, here are five cafés found around Sheung Wan that we recommend checking out.
1. Café 34T
Café 34T is unlike any other café you’ve been to. In addition to the comforting atmosphere, there’s a pinch of playfulness permeating throughout the café. Several big LEGO blocks are scattered across the café and they’re constantly being played with by the two resident puppies – BenBen and Mika. The LEGO blocks are also innovatively used as makeshift tables are for those who’d like to sit outdoors and enjoy the hustle and bustle of Sheung Wan. Café 34T has created a very welcoming scene and encourages many pet-owners to come down with their beloved dogs and cats. You certainly won’t miss this charming café when you pass by.
2. Barista Jam
William, a serious coffee connoisseur, founded Barista Jam with the aim of sharing his passion with like-minded people. His love for coffee shines through in the way the all his baristas treat their coffee and beans. Their special drip coffee and breakfasts are highly spoken of throughout the city and we’ve yet to come across anyone who hasn’t had an enjoyable experience at Barista Jam. While small, this quiet café is perfectly suited for those who want to while away their Sunday mornings in comfort.

3. Why 50
The bright interior design and relaxing music supplements the homely feel of the space, so it’s no surprise that it’s a popular spot amongst the district’s freelancers and co-working members. They also occasionally hold latte art workshops, led by their professional baristas, so do keep your eyes peeled for any upcoming events!

We can’t think of anything better than having a piece of delicious Green Tea Cheesecake accompanied by a steaming cup of tea. Most of the signature cake flavors at Teakha are tea-related as well and they’re so popular that some people visit just for their cakes.

5. Cupping Room
Ever since they started brewing, they’ve won numerous awards in the Hong Kong Barista Championship, World Barista Championship and many other competitions. Not to mention, their smashed avocado on toast is ranked amongst the very best in the city. The fact that they’ve expanded to Wan Chai, Central and Po Hing Fong only goes to show how popular they are. If you’ve yet to visit, you need to put it on your to-do list.
